The Bedgebury Florilegium, consists of a group of talented artists who make accurate and beautiful records of our trees and plants. They are continuing a tradition of botanical painting that dates back to at least the 15th century.
The word florilegium originally meant a collection of flowers, but now has come to mean a collection of botanical paintings.
The group currently consists of about 6 artists and meets at Bedgebury once a month. The tree paintings record all aspects of its life cycle, including immature strobili "conifer flowers" as well as mature cones. The group plan to record our wild flowers as well, but with over a 1,000 species of trees shrubs and flowers this will be a long job!
